Attachments ACT Constitution and Rules Approved at AGM 260216 (362 kB)
Rising government expenditure on health has failed to deliver improved health outcomes for our society, or improved results for patients. We need to make structural changes to the way health is delivered, before we consider spending more money for little gain in service levels.
There is too much bureaucracy in health, and the model of having twenty DHBs of 11 members is broken.
On average we will increase teacher salaries by $17,700 per teacher. This will enable the best teachers to stay in the classroom, and elevate teaching as a profession.
ACT’S fundamental belief is that the government should spend less of your money.
You earned it, and you are the best person to decide how to spend or invest it.
The Government’s accounts show surpluses rising every year. In the next few years they’ll add up to over $20 billion. Only ACT will give that money back to you, and deliver a tax cut with no cuts to core services like health, education or police.
Free speech, free trade, limited and smarter government, the rule of law and secure property rights are at the core of our principles.
